Rachel Villari's work communicates emotionally subjective experiences through her bold use of color. While drawing inspiration from a variety of styles – ranging from Artemisia Gentilischi to Hilma af Klint – her abstract paintings explore ideas related to female representation in popular culture. Her work has been exhibited throughout New England, including Rhode Island School of Design's Woods-Gerry Gallery, the Newport Art Museum and soon internationally for The Brick Lane Gallery in London. As an educator, she has taught studio and art history courses throughout her home state of Rhode Island, including RISD|CE and Johnson & Wales University. With formal training in studio art, art history and expressive therapies, Rachel holds a Master's Degree in Art Education from Boston University.
Rachel will be a featured Artist in Curatorial Volume.1, Leaders In Contemporary Art. Set to be published July, 2019.
